Without jogging around in the bay area of Hakodate City, you can not enjoy enough your stay in the old town and the city, I think.
I am so sorry for posting the photos of same place I jogged around every year but it is so comfortable, energizing and refreshing to jog around the bay area and the foot of Mt. Hakodate in the morning.
Have you eve ordered "Buta-kushi" ? It is skewered sliced pork belly grilled with leek. It is one of our favorites on this globe as well as block pork belly boiled with broth, soy sauce and special spices.
I was strolling around the old town in Hakodate City because my wife was a little bit too tired and needed to dive into the bed of our room in Hotel Pako.
The beautiful and shining moon was a little bit too bright for taking the photo but it means lack of my skill to take such night landscape, I think.
Should I post a comment with these photos ?
This is the scenery you can savor enough from the top of Mt. Hakodate. You can use the bus to reach the summit
Let's call it a day. The silhouette of Shimokita Peninsula of Aomori Prefecture was disappearing in the darkness. The light of lives emerged near the sea level.
I jogged to the foot of Mt. Hakodate, the residential area of the City. My father had lived there thirty years ago and I visited him several times during his mandate in the city.
Mt. Hakodate could be seen on my way from Matsumae Town to Hakodate City. The residential area Yachigashira is at the foot of the mountain.
I have visit there again and again even after my father had gone. So nice refurbished hot spring bath "Yachigashira Onsen" is there.
